Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: First show / Last show / Dream show

Nice! I actually saw them at Deer Creek the night after that year, me and my buddy went - our 1st "Dead" show, I remember only knowing a couple dozen tunes at that time, and there being lots of drugs. My buddy phished out doing some really potent mushrooms and waaay too many nitrous balloons!

And to answer your earlier question, I was supposed to go to the '09 shows at Allstate arena but my finals schedule conflicted with those dates. Ended up seeing 'em later that summer at Rothbury. My same buddy went to that show, and got harassed and searched HARD by a Il state trooper at a toll booth!

Edit- ok I think you were actually talking about Furthur. I've actually never seen them believe it or not, but I'd like to sometime. They get some negative feedback at this forum but I'd still like to decide for myself. Here's my e-mail: goose31285@yahoo.com. Lets for sure hit up the Jazz Estate sometime I haven't been there in quite a while.

Yea those 2004 shows were a blast. One of the best nights of my life. Shrooms and a lot of people scares me.

Is your buddy a big Wook? ahah

I did see the dead in 2009 at all state. I thought it was decent. Left disapointed by the lack of phil bombs and tremors. Though there were certainly highlights.

And yea you should see furthur (if they would could around!!!!). My buddy and I really enjoyed the shows. Certainly a bit better than going to see The Dead. I wonder what it would be like with just Billy K on the drums......

Ill hit ya up about the jazz estate for sure. Could very well be going tomorrow night.

Well, he does have dreadlocks, haha, but a very legit job, so not exactly. Although I have messed with him about it before. Which is ridiculous because I have them too and I've been unemployed for about 6 months!

I've been traveling a lot this summer, not anywhere too exciting, but I haven't been in Mil much on the weekends. In a few weeks when school starts up again, I'll be here all the time. But I'm down for sure; last time I was there Stealin' Strings played a pretty killer set. Ever heard of 'em? They're from Cedarburg I think...

yea I've heard of them but don't know much about them. Like I've talked with you about before, i'm not fond of the scene so I typically stray from anything of the like. Which is why I prefer the weekends there. And the music is much better, well, IMO.

My short hair and relatively "square" look might throw ya off hah.

Might I just add... was at a bar last night and immediately got hassled about looking so young and about how Im the guy with the drugs. I said hey just because I wear a grateful dead shirt doesnt mean I'm a druggie. Then the guy goes "grateful dead!, come over here" then I respond ya me and my buds were jamming out to a killer morning dew on the way here. He gave me a idk wtf you're talking about look and then I walked away. This is the story of my life when talking to "grateful dead fans"
